no to enforcing them. these are people saying i'm going to break the law by not enforcing federal government law. in mississippi the governor asked his state house speaker to pass a law declaring unconstitutional gun laws illegal. he also doesn't believe in the ban on high capacity magazines because criminals could still get their hands on them. he said this week, quote, if they want a 30-round clip, they're going to get it in brazil or the soviet union. self-protecting citizens won't have that right, criminals will. soviet union? how about keeping up with the class here. we got to look at this. here is david keene, who i have known for years. he's a hard conservative. here he is on "cbs this morning" talking about background checks. in this area i think people right, left, and center with any kind of rational sense know we have to do something. don't let criminals, don't let people with court-ordered mental situations where they have been ordered not to do things or been under watch to get ahold of guns. let's watch david keene on "cbs this morning." >> we want to see the proposal, but as a gen

suspicious about social security and government support for the elderly and spending money on medical research and then get this, suspicious about programs a, making sure that kids and poverty are getting enough to eat. this is not only deeply dishonest, it's a gross distortion, a lecture coming from a man who is responsible for a massive increase in poverty during his presidency. now, a third thing we saw from obama's press conference was how deeply misleading his facts and his claims are. for example, obama kept saying his plan would cut 4 trillion dollars in the budget in the next decade, but that claim is utterly untrue. as any number of fact checkers have pointed out the 4 trillion dollar figure comes from number one, it counts 1 trillion in cuts and reached a year ago in the budget negotiations with congress, meaning those savings are already in the bank. number two, it counts 800 billion dollars in savings and debt payments from lower deficits, as a spending cut. that's a dubious claim. number three, obama is counting a nearly 1 trillion dollar savings from more money than nobo
